Building the Beloved Community

Next week we celebrate the birthday of Dr. King. 

We celebrate his work, and his unshakable love for his fellow human beings. It reminds me, that here, in Kittitas County, our strength lies in the wonderful people and our shared love of our communities.  

Together, we have always found ways to celebrate our triumphs, encouraged all creative aspects of life and thinking, and we are quick to come together to help a neighbor through a tough time. We look out for each other because it is the right thing to do, it is the decent thing to do. 

As we celebrate a man who believed in building a beloved community of justice, of equal opportunity, and for a world that left no room for poverty, prejudice or violence, consider joining us in committing to build a beloved Community. 

Let us come together and build a beloved community of hope and understanding. A community based on helping others, working with our neighbor to create strength, stability, and self-reliance for all.
